The Future of Design

Stephen Anderson, author of the book Seductive Interaction Design, talks at SXSW about the Future of Design. “Design is in the midst of a shift. A shift that will make much of our present skills obsolete, and demand we learn new skills, or become… irrelevant. That’s what I want to talk about today. Nothing too serious!”

Facilitating meetings.(And while we’re on the topic, I will be speaking primarily to designers today; I do take a very broad view of who is a designer, but this is aimed mostly at design practitioners).

What stories (truth or fiction) have helped you reflect on the unintended consequences of tech?
Think Black Mirror, BladeRunner, Ex Machina, Her, Continuum, Little Brother, Fahrenheit 451
